It Takes Two Co-Op Hands on Preview

Josef Fares of Hazelight Studios has two major releases under his belt, both focused on narrative gameplay featuring two major characters. While 2013's Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons was a single player affair except on Switch, 2018's A Way Out was a full on co-op experience for two players as they attempted to break out of a prison. Now Josef and Hazelight are back for something decidedly different and honestly, all together fresh for video games.

Children of Morta Stream Recap and Impressions

With the hustle and bustle that comes with last few months of the year, there are cases where good co-op games slip under our radar. Children of Morta absolutely falls into this category. Fortunately, we took some time this past Monday to rectify that and if you haven't checked out this action-RPG rogue-lite, then now's a good time for you to rectify it as well.

Darksiders: Genesis Stream Recap and Impressions

The Darksiders franchise got a new entry last week on the PC (console version is coming February 2020) with Darksiders: Genesis, an isometric, twin-stick shooter-ish, action/adventure game.
